We walked the track up the the summit. Many, many stairs and steep paths but the view is fantastic. If you are really fit you can climb the almost vertical staircase to the observation post. There should be some sort of warning sign saying that if you have a heart condition you should re-think the adventure. We didn't have any such problems but a few people were taking breaks and big breaths. The shaved ice we had after the climb was a nice way to reward ourselves for the effort.

Must see in Oahu! I took the public bus to the foot of Diamond Head Park. I walked up the hill through a tunnel down the inside of the museum and to the Park entrance. The entrance fee is $1.00.
We then walked up the train to get to the top of Diamond head. It is a moderate to hard climb.
Be sure to carry water, Gatorade, or another sugary drink. You will sweat as you go up if you are a senior citizen like me.
The exhilaration happens when you get to the top. The view of Waikiki is amazing! It is a must do. Of interest is the 97 step staircase, a tunnel that you go through, a circular stair case, and of course the top and the magnificent view.
This is a must do.

We hiked from our hotel and back (about 14 kilometres) and loved it, even the last 99 steps! Views were spectacular! It got a little crowded, but that’s Waikiki I guess. Rewarded ourselves with a pineapple smoothie on the way down.

Went early (6:30am) to beat the crowds and catch the sunrise halfway up, amazing views! Bring water and shoes with a good grip, saw some people attempt this in sliders, terrain is rough in patches!

Worth the climb. A little difficult with uneven track to be negotiated.
View from the top well worth the effort.

We enjoyed this quick and easy hike very much. We also enjoyed the history of Diamond Head. It was strangely mysterious and very beautiful. It is better to find parking on the street outside the park and walk in. If not go later in the afternoon. Otherwise you could be waiting a long time just to park.

Go at sunrise - you won't regret it. The views are incredible. However, it was very busy with many tour buses arriving for sunrise, so try and get there before 6am (when the gates open)!

Caught the number 23 public bus from just along outside the Ilikai at 9am up to diamond head $5.50 one way pp or 11 for an all day pass. Bus does not give change fyi. Its $21 for an uber also from ilikai to diamond head or the green trolley does a tour trip up for $25 pp and you can catch it back for $10pp if you like once you are there. Arrived round half 9 and set off up the track it was busy single file up most of the way took round 45 minutes to an hour as there were alot of people however on less busy days coukd easily do in 30mins. Its a fairly easy track for all ages uneven terrain though and 99 steps at one stage but you can avoid these and go another way if needed. Amazing views well worth the trip up. Need sports shoes for the walk and a hat is a good idea and sunscreen.

If you want to look out over Oahu this is a must do. Make sure to take a bottle of water with you. You can Uber or do a tour. About a half hour climb. Awesome views from the top.
